Under the leadership of David Gergen, Karen Elliott House and Don McHenry, participants finalized a report entitled “Bulding a More United America,” which served as a starting point for groundbreaking community dialogues across the country.
The Uniting America project fostered dialogue on some of the most challenging issues in American life, from religion, to race, to economic justice, to the changing composition of the family. In the course of six Assemblies convened over four years, participants worked to find common ground on these issues and common strategies for strengthening the democratic processes that allow us to work through them. Collectively, the Uniting America events brought together some 300 scholars, practitioners, business leaders, and policymakers. The project produced a series of reports, and a very successful book: Uncommon Common Ground: Race and America's Future.
